In-person or Online Therapy
Therapy is a safe place to heal from hurts and struggles. You may experience depression, anxiety, or feel overwhelmed and confused during a crisis or situation you do not understand. Therapy allows you to explore and address the issues you face at a pace that promotes deep healing and resolution.
My goal in providing you therapy is to help you get better. I will help you gain the insights necessary to heal and change, and assist you with both your change, and integrating it with your life and the people around you.
You can overcome your anxiety, or depression, grief, sexual concerns, or stress. There is life after and even during hard circumstances.
My approach blends traditional psychotherapy, which is focused on what is going on in your mind, with somatic therapy, which focuses on the parts of trauma that are stored in your body. Utilizing both approaches provides a holistic approach to therapy, and can help you more quickly heal or change. Most of my clients see significant improvement in a relatively few number of sessions, and numerous clients have been surprised at the efficacy, especially those who have tried therapy before. It works for them, and it can work for you.

What to Expect
Initial Phone Consultation
We will have a 20-minute phone conversation to assess if I can best meet your needs at this time. If I think there may be someone better suited to help you, I will refer you to another qualified and respected professional.
Before the First Appointment
Once an appointment has been scheduled, I will email a confirmation along with necessary forms for you to complete at home and bring to the appointment. The paperwork covers basic information I need from you including contact and background information, reasons for seeking therapy or coaching, and your informed consent allowing us to work together.
The First Appointment
We will spend 75 to 100 minutes together to review your paperwork, discuss your therapy or coaching needs, and most importantly allow time for me to get to know you so the work can begin. We will also review practical concerns such as payment, confidentiality, cancellations, and phone calls between appointments.
If we decide to work together, it will be important for you to commit to at least 4 appointments to set the foundation of our work. We will choose a consistent time each week to ensure the best basis for safety and trust. Appointments are typically 50 -60 minutes once a week. Based on your specific needs, appointments may be scheduled every 2 weeks or even once a month.
